The Agra Fort, spread over 94 acres of land and close to the Taj Mahal, is an exquisite showpiece of Mughal architecture, but only one third of it is open to tourists. This means people are thus denied the opportunity to see the famous Delhi Gate, Salim Garh and Birbal’s haveli; nor can they see the house where Shivaji was kept in custody before he eventually managed to flee Aug 19, 1666.

If the army vacates the Fort, it will be possible to tour the whole of the UNESCO site and give tourists another reason to stay the night in Agra.  The local tourism industry has been demanding the opening of the entire Agra Fort for a number of years, but so far no decision has been taken at the highest level.

If you would like to visit Agra Fort, it is one of the many destinations on our Taj, Tigers & Temple tour.
